The SAT exam has been redesigned beginning in spring of 2016; placing more emphasis in content that reflects the academic material college students face throughout their courses. The 3-hour test is now scored over 1600 points, with sections of Evidence-based reading and Math. It also includes an optional essay, which is graded separately. For students who wish to apply to universities in the United States or Canada, getting ready for this test during the first term of their senior year is essential. For this reason, the school offered an SAT practice test on Monday, May 30th and an information session for students and parents. The SAT course will begin on Saturday, June 11th.
